Dog Bite Lawyers MN – Is it Worth it to Hire a Lawyer


If a dog bites you, the injury can be severe. In fact, over the years, our dog bite lawyers MN have seen many terrible injuries. Of course, the worst cases are where the dog bites a child in the face. However, there are also severe injuries to adults.

We make sure the medical bills are paid and future needs are provided for. Our lawyers also will get you full compensation for pain, suffering, and disfigurement.

However, in cases where the injury is less serious, such as a puncture wound to the leg, a lawyer may not be necessary. In those cases, there may not be any medical treatment, or the treatment may be minimal. The starting point is to verify the dog is up to date on its shots. Otherwise, you may need rabies vaccine, which can be expensive and painful.


In Minnesota, technically, you are always entitled to compensation if someone’s dog bites or injuries you. The law is clear in that regard.
